Lifesize gingerbread house part of holiday decor at St. Regis Atlanta

The Buckhead hotel also brings back Tea with Santa and its Christmas Day Experience

Step inside the St. Regis Atlanta this holiday season, and you’ll step inside a lifesize gingerbread house.

Thanks to a collaboration with Lucy’s Market and designer Suzanne Kasler, the Buckhead hotel will become a winter wonderland “immersed in elegance and glamour,” according to a press release.

Kasler and Kim Wilson, owner of Lucy’s Market, aren’t stopping at a 206-square-foot gingerbread house, however. The outside of the house will be decorated with lifesize nutcrackers, silver holiday trees and holiday window displays — all of which can be bought.

Lucy’s Market will stock the inside of the house with holiday linens, candles, barware, snow and music boxes, lacquer wreaths, premium candies and chocolates and more.

The Lucy’s Market Gingerbread House pop-up will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday’s and Saturday’s.

Kasler will use her talents to decorate the 24-foot holiday tree. She will “combine pops of silver — through ornaments and garland made of glass — (with) traditional touches of red and green tartan to create an exquisite, show-stopping tree that exudes her unparalleled style. The base of the tree will feature packages beautifully wrapped in Suzanne’s beloved Ballard Designs plaid,” the press release stated.

Kasler will be on hand Friday, November 26, for the official tree lighting ceremony.

The St. Regis Atlanta will also resume its Tea with Santa and Christmas Day Celebration Experience this year. The Christmas Day Celebration will feature a “decadent feast,” a six-piece jazz band and an appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Reservations for both Tea with Santa and the Christmas Day Celebration Experience can be booked via the hotel’s Holiday Desk or online at
